Designing Wobots


In Star Trek, Harry Mudd (rhymes with Fudd) made many wobots and one woe-bot (bottom pics). Jokes at bottom, setup up top. I hint about Designing Women using a Florida theme. Two cast members (top left) fit; it takes Annie Potts out of the equation. Plus, the new Star Trek might see fit to cast Annie as Woe-bot wife. I see Jean Smart as Overkill. My choice, Delta Burke (top right); she also comes in plus size if you prefer. The former Miss Florida and obvious “sex object” had a role in the feminist movie, A Bunny’s Tale. In the movie, Kristie Alley plays Gloria Steinem during her time as a Playboy Bunny. Steinem is the feminist who coined the term,“sex object.”  Women may see the mixed message sent in sex object status. I’m sure straight guys do. Kristie Alley also plays a hot Vulcan (not Hephaestus) in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan; this Scientologist also comes a plus size version.

Wobots show cleavage; Woe-bots show cleavers. Insert your choice in Leave it to Beaver jokes. You have to watch out for crazy eye. Giving your wobot, guided missile eye for your guided missile may work well if you get the cleavage – cleaver programming right. Comic book guys know Metal Men may come in Iron, Lead, and Tin; but wobots need some Platinum. Add some rose nectar for a touch of Serenity and if you don’t know about another Lenore. Still a high risk for woe-bot; even Big Bang brain like Kripke can’t figure out feminist wabbits.

One note of interest to me; Gloria Steinmen’s buddy: Florynce “Flo” Kennedy.

A Cause Without a Rebel


Did Ferdinand want to butt heads? No.Ferdinand wanted to tiptoe through the tulips, but bulls can’t tiptoe. In Star Wars, C3PO had a purpose, but had a “You got the wrong robot” attitude. James Dean hit a chord without guitar or any other instrument, like Hans Solo. Blue jean fever spread across the globe when, Rebel without cause hit the screen. Italy the fashion maker made the first jeans, but the Giant rebel icon made the sell. Marketing and religion use rebel icons to serve their own purpose, but I see dangers in both. Mania drives both sells and Inquisitions. I had a problem with my last post and a couple of chapters in my book because I want to tiptoe, but I feel like a bull. Big Religion = Big Money = Big Brother = Rich peeing on the poor.

Good Cast?


Angela Bassestt had the body and energy, but lacked the cheekbones. The singing voice came from Tina Turner, so the movie got away with less talent. If they did the movie a few years later; Beyonce had a good match. Angela may have still won the roll, due to acting talent.

Jamie Foxx does snarky and cool, but Ray Charles mostly does happy. Ray has a lanky look and I still see stocky Jamie when he does Ray, the movie.

We don’t have real Hobbits, but I bet a translation of Flipper speak looks like this: “What an odd boy they gave me. You know he looks like Hobbit. Yes, he does look like a Hobbit. Hey, somebody cast this kid as Frodo.

Some movies cheat. Monster cheated.Charlize Theron stole the role from less attractive candidates. Christina Ricci doesn’t use the same name and looks nothing like Aileen Wounos’ real lover. Ricci and Elijah Wood make a good match as long lost twins. Both have an attractive, but odd look. I look for Florida links and you will find many matches.

To Cult or Not to Cult


Some hate the label. Can we call these “Out There” religions because they have outer space links. Big Religion has caused wars, so I try not to judge to hard. These three have had impact on Florida, so they sit in my domain.

Raëlians hung out in Miami for a while. Do I now much about them? No, but I’m sure few will like a peek and they embrace Peeping Toms.

The Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster or Pastafarianism had serious impact on major issues. I do like spaghetti, so I have no gripes.

Scientology has big lawyers and big stars, but they also have a movie bomb. I tried reading Battlefield Earth and it ranks as the first book that I started never finished. I’m sorry it doesn’t reflect well on their religion. I believe in religious freedom, so I believe they have rights and I have a right to my own opinion.

Search For God In Time


God = Hope = Life Eternal = Time

Scrooge finds salvation in time. In 12 Monkeys a man goes back in time to save humanity. Altered States, shows a man finding salvation; when he awakens ancient genes. You can see preconceived notions get shattered in all three looks into the past. The, “I know – You don’t know” fight about religion — makes war. You see it time after time. Only a fool or the evil says what god wants. Does God need a yapping human? I hope god exists. I doubt a god minds some doubts. If I want yapping I will get a dog; it may know more about god than any human ever will. Don’t waste time by talking up you as a vessel for god. I’m sorry for wasting your time and mine in a hopeless goodwill message. I hope you the best.

Doing the Hoochie in Chattahoochee


What a welcoming place. True, this is just the administration office for the Florida State Hospital. The movie picture, Chattahoochee,  named for the town gives you an idea about the next stop. May be worth the trip if you reach the end of the tag line: At the edge of insanity lies HOPE.

I haven’t seen the movie, but I need to. Do they use Ned Beaty in a classic inside joke? Have him as an inmate squealing like a pig or playing hoochie mama. You almost hate to laugh, but you got to.

The Crews Way to Twist Screws


Harry Crews uses shock. Lightning served great purpose to primitive man; it started fires and fire can be very good. Some may start fires with these books. Crews doesn’t shy away from much and will offend the book burning type. He wrote one book about a guy eating a car to make a case against, what he saw as, an irrational love for cars.

The outer two books look at religion and the snakes you find. You often seen snakes in religion. In Feast of Snakes, Crews shows the practice in extreme. Snakes symbolize intertwining bodies; male anatomy; life reborn. in their shedding skin; and eternity, in the circle form shown on the cover. The Gospel Singer shows a devil in angel form. A charlatan who preys on people in their search for hope.

The Hawk is Dying comes in book and movie form. Falconry, an old practice, and when you favor Free Bird; it hurts a little.

Celebration takes place at a trailer park for retired persons. A young woman sparks some old fires. Naked in Garden Hills takes place in my neck of the woods, Bone Valley. I made a short post on phosphate and it shows a book about the importance. Crews writes about her rape of land.

It Gives Good Tail

MANATEE_FUGAnd I mean the Manatee. It did the ooze.  You know the butt up – butt down undulation move that starlets do; like a Candace Parker, go to move. You may have seen the Fox do it at the movies. Miss Jones did it all through, Entrapment, looking like 007 bait. I know why horned seamen dreamed in mermaid, about manatee tail. I’m joking and I’m not. Any PETA girl, named Fox, wanting me to show them how much I love a manatee; drop me a line. I might take me some hook, line and sinker. I don’t joke about Candace, Last I knew her husband was one big dude.

Conan had a Horny Manatee and 13 Miami authors combined to make Naked Came the Manatee. Conan may have it backward.

Don’t Kill Johnny Depp


Replace kill with Wonderful Life and figure it out. Depp comes from Dieppe like the French dudes on the right. In Florida, we have place called Matanzas; it means massacre. Many men from Dieppe died there. Depp comes from Huguenot stock and they died in many places because they didn’t conform to Big Religion. Many died at the St. Bartholomew’s Massacre due to men with white crosses. My kin may have tried to kill Depp’s kin, but I also have Huguenot blood and we might be kin. I wrote my book because I saw my kin trying to kill my kin. Everyone has enemy ancestors in their blood. Face facts and don’t kill for god. If god can create; god can destroy without puny humans. (Big Duh!)

Poet to Novelist to Screenwriter


Dorothy Porter appears to have made the jump. I haven’t read the the book nor have I seen the movie, but I know the difficulty in the leap. James Dickey, the poet, made the Leap with Deliverance; I have read and watched both works. I am allusion crazy and I realize people can’t always follow allusions without help. I found The Monkey’s Mask while trying to depict the use of the mask in my book. My mask does make a monkey of my main character, if you apply the cliché. We both appear to use BDSM, but mine is closer to how the housewife wanted to make Edward Scissorhands a sex toy. I write with humor, but Porter must fit the erotic thriller genre.
